When it comes to style and beauty, nobody does it like the French. In fact, a lot of our favourite beauty and fashion trends almost always trace back to a French origin - and for good reason too.
French girls have always been the ones to watch when it comes to their rule-breaking sense of style, their artfully undone hair, to their flawless makeup looks. Speaking of, the French have also inspired a life changing skin care product that has taken skin care regimes by storm all over the world. We’re talking about micellar water, ladies - or should we say mademoiselle?
BIODERMA is a pioneer when it comes to micellar water and their Sensibio H20 is the ultimate product. Previously only available in French pharmacies, it’s now estimated that there is one bottle sold every three seconds worldwide. The cleansing water is loved for its ability to effortlessly remove dirt and oil from your face, with absolutely no scrubbing required. The gentle micellar lotion is made up of micelle (tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules) and soft purified water, making it perfectly compatible with all skin types. It was also recently a backstage staple at the latest Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show… Need we say more?
To us, micellar water is the ultimate beauty product. So if you’ve been sleeping on it, now’s the time to try it out. Let us help you understand more about the range available.
Why we love Sensibio H2O
First of all, Sensibio H2O just provides superior and effective makeup removal. Micelle molecules are highly fatty, therefore following the principle that oil attracts oil, micellar water acts as a magnet on your skin picking up stubborn dirt, build-up and long-wear makeup residue. What’s even better, you’re left without the greasy residue; instead your face will feel fresh, clean and comfortable.
As well as removing all your makeup and dirt, Sensibio H2O also offers gentle cleansing in the process. Packed with unique restorative properties, micellar water hydrates and nourishes your skin leaving your face feeling hydrated with a glowy, dewy finish.
Sensibio H2O benefits all skin types. Being soap, alcohol and fragrance-free, micellar water is free from harsh chemicals that dry skin out. The water is a mild, non-irritating formula meaning even ladies with the most sensitive skin can shower themselves with Sensibio H2O with no fear of redness, irritation or itchiness. The non-rinse cleanser refreshes, soothes and preps all skin types, making it the perfect edition to any skincare and makeup regime.
Sensibio H2O is recommended by pharmacists. Formulated with highly purified water that is entirely free of impurities and irritants, micellar water is the preferred makeup removal and cleansing formula of dermatology professionals.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O is available in three unique formulas each packed with micelle goodness and gentle restorative properties for all skin types:
Bioderma Sensibio H2O
The original. Sensibio H2O is ideal for sensitive to intolerant skin, working to soothe and clear irritated and normal skin types. Cleanse and remove makeup from your face and eyes effortlessly, and gain instant freshness in the process.
Bioderma Hydrabio H2O
Ideal for dry, dehydrated skin. Hydrabio H2O combines high cleansing power with hydrating properties to bring life back to dry irritated skin.
Bioderma Sebium H2O
Ideal for combination, oily or blemished skin. Sebium H2O works to gently cleanse and remove makeup from your skin while regulating oil production and controlling redness and blemishes.
Tips & tricks on how to use it:
- Soak a cotton pad with your chosen Bioderma micellar water
- Gently cleanse and/or remove makeup from your eyes and face
- Re-apply with fresh cotton pads until they appear clean with no residue or dirt
- Lightly dab face with a clean towel
- To fix a dodgy winged liner, dab a cotton bud into the Sensibio H20 and fix as required.
- To shape a running red lip - dab a cotton bud into Sensibio H20, run around the natural shape of the lips to clean it up, especially in the cupid’s bow. Re-touch with a wand concealer like the Elf HD Lifting Concealer.
- To get the ultimate clean - Use a gentle oil cleanser, wash off with lukewarm water then repeat steps for general use. It will remove even the heaviest makeup applications.
